Re: **** March High Stakes Thread ****

Who is going to play him next?

Durrrr - main possibility, on a good run though lately and may not want to jeopardise it.
Benyamine - nowhere to be seen
Patrik - Bad year so far and may not fancy losing another million or two.
Ivey - Will he multi-table Isildur and will he ever come online?
Gus - Too smart not to
Justin - I'm sure he'd go again, but don't know if he'll play high enough now Isildur's got a thirst for 500/1k
CR - Can't see any of them coming back in a hurry to play.
Ziig - very possible, he's down a bit now but it won't really matter much to him
Postflop - No reason not to, he's a big winner for the year, can't see him sitting at 500/1k though.
Ashman - he doesn't like playing Ashman and his limping game

Then that just leaves playing smaller against Ike/jungleman/Galfond and anyone else that will sit with him. So where's he really going to get his action from?

i agree

multi-tabling nosebleeds HU is the one challenge he has refused to meet in his career

if he wants to continue to be considered the best, he is going to have to step up to the plate at some point

otherwise, he is going to lose his crown

I reckon there's a way to just keep reinstalling the trial. Just need to find the entries.
From a viral marketing point of view it must be worth Full Tilt springing for a dozen or so of these hand grabbers given the amount of views this thread gets each and every month. At worst it costs them $600 at best they get given them for nothing.

Does fulltiltsean(?) live round here ?

I'm no PLO pro but what I've seen in the recent sessions is Isi having more patience and not trying to make dumb hero calls on the river. I've seen him time a lot more and end up folding hands (which he was probably crushed) than his first big run on FT.

Re: **** March High Stakes Thread ****

Both Isildur1 and Martonas have had epic rises and astounding falls. Isildur1 looked unbeatable a few months ago, and then was taken to the cleaners by multiple players.

I think the sick action will continue, and I wouldn't be surprised to see Isildur1 get destroyed again, only to rebuild and go on an epic run once more. All of this has happened before, and will happen again... and again... and again...

The problem is they then encourage datamining and endorse using programs such as Idleminer which I think is against the rules. Everyone who views this thread knows about FTP anyway so there's little value in it for them.

Is it possible that Howard Lederer and company is telling Dwan to stay away from Isildur, meaning that Ledererwouldnt appreciate it if Dwan played Isildur in a big session and lost one more time, cause then Dwans image as the king would definitely be destroyed?
